Today (4th Dec), I put on a new brew, intended for next Winter. It’s a Cooper’s Dark Ale, with Cooper’s Brew Enhancer Type 2, and most of a block of Lindt 85% dark chocolate melted in. (Jill thought this was a bit of a waste, and that I should have just thrown in some cocoa powder instead.) “Chocolate” beer (especially chocolate stout) is usually made with “chocolate malt” (dark brown malted barley), not real chocolate, but chocolate in beer is a common home-brew recipe, and I see a few commercial chocolate beers are available now.
I tasted a second bottle of the Chilli and Lime Lager too. It’s smoother now after a few months in the bottle, but the taste of the chillis (not the heat) is pretty overwhelming. (I’m not sure if I can taste the Lime flavour at all.) So, I think next time back to my original recipe of just one hot chilli. But it’s still fit to drink. 🙂
